SoC Anxiety Syndrome

Posted by Jerry Tue, Mar 27 '07

The good thing about hosting your own proposal during Google SoC ranking times is that you know when someone hits the page. It becomes hopelessly addictive. Hello Gnomers/Googlers, if you’re reading this! (waves)

The bad thing about hosting your own proposal during Google SoC ranking times as an article on Typo is that the visitors will have no way to leave comments after reading it (although reviewers probably wouldn’t go out of their way to leave comments for fairness sake…) and you have no way to know what kind of impression it left on them, yet anxiously hoping some kind soul would perhaps wander to the front page and point out the fatal error in your document that you’ve just happened to miss… I’m tempted to add a Meebo widget. And how about the occasional mystery visits with no http reference so it’s impossible to know where they’re coming from? Great Penguins, the suspense!! I know I’m going to lose sleep until mid-April. :(

And the deadline’s extended to Thursday 2am too. Must resist… temptation to write… more!

P.S – This will also be the first time in a few years I’ve pinged Petaling Street again. Be gentle, fellow Malaysians!

Edit – Oh yeah, and I blame anxiety for the blatantly obvious elementary-level typo. :S
